I watched maybe 10 minutes of the Stanley Cup Finals. It didn’t interest me to see either of those teams win it, or lose it. Frankly, I didn’t care. It’s how I always am following the elimination of my team. I don’t like to see other teams play, it reminds me too much of how we lost, and the game is much harder to appreciate then. Regardless, congrats to the Detroit Red Wings. They won it, and they built their team the right way, on the fly, while always putting out a superior product year in and year out. The same can not be said about the Penguins, who owe their success thanks to a decade of losing, and some very lucky lottery balls to draft Crosby.

Now the Rangers offseason really begins. Looking towards the draft in a little over 2 weeks, I think we should go with whoever is the meanest, nastiest SOB defenseman available. I want a guy like Phaneuf, even if he doesn’t have the offensive upside. I want a guy who will level any player, at any time, and can fight, and can end careers. I know we have a shortage of elite offensive talent, but we also have an excess of wussiness. I’m ready to trim the fat.
